Huawei has a P30 Pro, Samsung has a Galaxy S10 5G and next month will be Galaxy Note 10 5G but iFan must wait for Apple’s iPhone 5G next year. In return, the latest report directly from Taiwan’s supply chain shows that upcoming iPhone 2020s will satisfy the fans’ expectations.
Apple is alleged to order Lumentum, the supplier of Face ID parts to increase production of ToF (Time of Flight) sensors by the end of 2019. The company intends to use both sensors to assist in receiving Better 3D face form in front and for augmented reality AR / Virtual Reality VR in iPhone 2020 models support 5G.
Currently, the technology of structured lighting scan that Apple is using for Face ID only scans a distance of one foot, while ToF cameras such as the camera on the back of Galaxy S10 5G or the front of LG G8, capable of scanning ten times farther.
The ability to deploy AR / VR is endless and Apple has recently removed AR glasses to focus on the capabilities of the ToF sensor that gives iPhone.
Last year, technology experts identified the 7nm mobile processor production process to help reduce transistors and the chip will be used for at least 4 or 5 years continuously. However, the reality is that both Samsung and TSMC are “racing” to study the 5nm process technology next year, and even 3nm in the near future.
Along with improving efficiency and fuel economy, the jump from 14nm to 10nm is much more spectacular than 7nm to 5nm, TSMC will conduct 5nm next year for Apple A14 processor and exclusively for iPhone 5G.
Therefore, iPhone 2020 models have been shaped. This series of products will definitely be redesigned, perhaps with smaller “rabbit ears”, or biometric scanners hidden under the screen.
Next year Apple will favor the 5nm A14 chip for iPhone 12, combined with Qualcomm’s next-generation 5nm modem. With that, the Time of Flight camera takes advantage of all that power and connectivity to enhance the augmented reality experience – AR.
